Dear Madam/Sir,

The attached file is my HTML file. In the "comment.exe", I run the SQL command to insert the data to a database. I could check the data had been put in the correspond variables in "comment.exe". Why dos it appear "File Download" windows when run the sub-procedure including the SQL commands?
My email address is csxhuang@yahoo.com

Thanks!

the directory where your CGI resides has to have execute rights in the file system as well as with the server software. Only then will the cgi be executed instead of downloaded. What server software do you use and what operating system do you run?

Dear Dr. MaDdUCK,

Sorry for forget to tell you details! The opearting system is Windows 98, and the Web server is Microsoft FrontPage 98. I put the HTML file in the root, and the "comment.exe" file in cgi-bin.
Could you give me the suggest as soon as possible?
Thanks!!!

Okay, there has to be something in Frontpgae to change the settings for the virtual directory cgi-bin. I don't have Frontpage myself so cannot say exactly, but I shall go and look aroung a little. If you can't get this to work I suggest that you deinstall the Frontpage webserver and user Windows 98's Peer Web Services (or Personal Web Server), whatever it is called. This program will have a nice utility where you can configure your cgi-bin correctly.
